The next best thing to a new dashboard, this form fitting cover is molded from high impact ABS plastic with the same texture as the original dash. This material will resist the damage caused by ultraviolet rays to factory dashes. The Dash Cover is designed for a simple, permanent installation and comes complete with instructions and special adhesive Note: The 70-72 Dash Cover will ONLY fit on a 70-72 Dashboard. Please see "Identifying your current 240Z dashboard" below. Identifying your current 240Z dashboard 1970-1971: Looking at the image above, if your dashboard does not have the "cross" indentation, and the top hole was not punched out from the factory, then your dash is a 1970 to 1971 (note that some owners may have punched this hole out themselves to use for a switch or similar). On these original 1970-1971 dashboards, the top hole was unused in the US, and the bottom hole housed the emergency flasher toggle switch. Note that your dash cover will have the "cross" indentation like on a 1972. 1972: If your dashboard does have the "cross" indentation, and both holes are cut out from the factory, your dash is a 1972. On these original 1972 dashboards, the top hole housed the cigar lighter, and the bottom hole housed the emergency flasher toggle switch. The "cross" cutout was for the flasher toggle decal. 1973: If your dashboard does not have the "cross" indentation, and both holes are cut out from the factory, your dash is a 1973. On these original 1973 dashboards, the top hole was for the cigar lighter, and the bottom hole had a "pull out" emergency flasher switch. Note: Over the years your dashboard may have been replaced with one from a different year. The 1972 dashboard in particular was available longer than the other two, and therefore was often purchased as a replacement for other year 240Z's. In addition, even from the factory, Nissan actually installed some 1972 Dashboards on a few very early 1973 240Z's. If you have to send the wrong one back to us, the shipping costs can add up quickly!
